Grateful Dead Live at Field House, Wesleyan University on 1970-05-03
- Live concert
- Grateful Dead
- DeadLists Project
Outdoor concert on the lawn outside the administration building. -- This was apparently recorded by students doing a project for a Sociology class.
This is surely one of the poorer audience masters from any era. The crowd is very loud as well. Frequently, the microphone is being moved around which affects the sound.
Deadlists gives a slightly different order for the songs. The order given here is almost certainly correct, though, as the recorder frequently mentions the time of day during many of the songs. We can assume that when he mentions the time is "12:07" at the end of Good Lovin', he really means to say "10:07" (he mentions it is "9:48" near the beginning of the song).
Deadlists also mentions that NRPS played Truck Drivin' Man & Fair Chance To Know preceding Me & My Uncle. The recorder also mentions that Good Lovin' is the seventh song played. We might then consider that this is the entire Dead set following a short set by the New Riders. Of course, that is no certainty.
- There is a small splice @ 1:30 of Good Lovin'.
- Sound Forge was used to correct the pitch and normalize.

Subject: not as bad as some say!
and it is the day after the harper show!
Subject: I was at this show
While I won't be downloading or saving this audience recording, I'm going to stick out the stream (I'm more than halfway through Good Lovin'.)
Jamming is very good on this. Good Lovin and Lovelight are not to be missed; Very, very Unique!!!
Warning: Tape is very rough. But Lovelight is surprisingly clear.
The girl at the end of Speedway is hilarious.
Please don't be a snob. Just put on your aud ears and do something else with this tape on. At some point it will suck you in. Lovelight, my goodness!
Subject: Free concert
If you're clamoring to hear what these people were feeling about Nixon's bombing of Cambodia (which would lead to the Kent State killings the next day), then give it a listen. If you want to hear Dead music, then don't waste your time (and disc space).
